    #10 Diving into the comments here on beBee is a way to find concentrated wisdom and a way to gain perspective on issues we may not have considered.... this comment by @Jerry Fletcherresonates as many times when we take some time to read a captivating comment again we come up with fresh perspectives in the learning. Truly a successful communication is about taking time to listen in to understand than mere sharing... your comment here @Mohammed A. Jawad has much depth of reflections and addresses the need to take the pause to breathe in the understanding . And when expressions take flight we need a reconsideration of the ramifications . And that is then the play of balance , of proportions and disproportions that the self creates, adjusts and develops as per the needs of the times and like you mention ... perhaps cherishing our dual states in all its givings and misgivings in the wake of the state of one's sinews at that moment .

    Perhaps, when we unveil our identities step by step we all become cautious for every step to be taken. In remaining obscure, we hold fleeting thoughts and lives, and forget and refresh ourselves by the dawn and dusk in this very digital, global village. Somehow, social media keeps our sinews soaring and we cherish dual states, that is, virtual and real worlds in disproportionate manner.

    Smooth is fast. When we take the time to open our eyes to truly see, open our ears to hear, and open our minds to think beyond the moment we just might be getting somewhere. Far too often we allow the speed of things to cloud or hide the interwoven nature of things. The interactions, the inter-dependencies, the connections, the story's, the things we take for granted and yes, even the steps yet to come. May be a stretch but your writing made me think of humanity. We just may be like the Aspen tree(s). Where the roots are connected and interwoven and on the surface appear to be individual entities when in reality, they are one community. Maybe in our cosmic sense we can slow down and understand the essence of smooth. @Savvy Raj Keep making a difference: one person, one step at a time.

    #5 yes sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, this issue is haunting me for a fairly long time that apart from people who are in miserable state out of poverty and debt, opting for suicide. but, now people who are educated and well to do also opting for suicide unable to cope up with the pressure and lifestyle. even in our country brilliant students from engineering, medical and management faculty too are succumbing and this trend at rise. i wonder, what education we are dispensing with what ambition!

    The same issue was hanging in my head as I keep reading about suicidal attempts of young people. have we reached this stage of helplessness? Is it a state of total chaos and self-emptiness and bankruptcy?

    Every once in a while, @Gert Scholtz, it's good to see a writer give a nod to another writer. You've done this more than once, and you obviously pick good examples (I like Jim's stuff, too). I've mentioned in a few posts the difficulty young people have taking advice from older people. The examples you've shown of Jim's advice demonstrates good, clean thinking. More importantly, it's advice young people in particular would be wise to follow. At our ages, we've learned to assemble thoughts in our minds. We've done it for years. But we did have to learn this. Very often, I read young people's posts where it's obvious they've decided to just "write themselves out." That's what's known as a "draft." That isn't an article or a post or a blog/post. That's where I think young people could learn a lot from @Jim Murray, @Phil Friedman and @Gert Scholtz. Thanks for the post.

    The task which you took upon yourself to bring forth the glitter of the gems on this platform is phenomenal. Very few are really interested in what one says or do but it's incumbent upon those who are on a mission to make this world a better place to live and spread their wisdom. Hardly do I get enough time to read posts of these jewels because there is so much valuable material available here that it's difficult to read all of them. But there are series like what you and others do which helps me to reflect on those priceless words.

    @Jim Murray > "It means, in a nutshell, writing posts that give away a lot of so called trade secrets."

    Not a lot of danger in that. My experience is that having the information is still a way's from understanding it well and even further from being able to actually implement it. Good piece, Jim. Cheers!

    Interesting write-up Robert, I really enjoyed it. I have also been searching for this answer for quite some time but distraction is definitely a key reason. As a Muslim residing in the Middle East, I do not see myself or anyone that I know of having any intention of taking over any culture or country at all. I was educated in Texas and North Carolina and I left and have been working in the Middle East since then. You have to trust me that Muslims have no desire of taking over any country and acts of a few should not be plastered over the whole community. I will be happy to correspond with you as dialogue is always a way forward but you have to define another boogie man for now. Take Care and I would appreciate your reply Najib

    What a great message @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. Let us be the light that shines on others instead of the light that burns others. There will always be some who would rather take from someone and make them miserable but in the end, I think karma surely catches up. I never wish anything bad for anyone but sometimes lessons aren't learned until a person experiences their own darkness. It's with hope that those who have caused pain to others or take from others gain empathy if they find themselves in a similar situation. If everyone could just remember we are all human and every human has their flaws, maybe, just maybe the world would be a much better place.

    You draw the most enthralling comments, dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, and @Edward Lewellen's question, @Sara Jacobovici's musing brings up very important issues; have some become so adept at deception, do they even know they are deceiving anymore? Edward also said the book he's reading 'details how people assume personas over the Internet they would not in person'. I'm deliberately surmising we all do that; we are not the person we appear to be, but in a way, we are better?
    I react. Someone unknowingly walks in front of a car; I stop them. Someone screams for help; I go and help. All of us here would do the same I think. These random acts are really devoid of thought; mere instinct. But am I that same person on a keyboard? Dunno....great thoughts you raise!

    @Aleta Curry I am doing an experiment. I will ad the links as soon as it is over. LinkedIn distributes posts based on how many people comment on and like them in the first hour. Also, because organic reach is limited, if you want certain people to see your content, if you don't tag them, chances are they won't see it. The goal is not to go viral for viral's sake. It's to ensure that your posts are seen by your connections and followers. If you don't tag, chances are they won't see them.

    I don't usually 'tag' on LinkedIn. I am not seeing the connection between taggin and going viral, unless you're taggin Bill Gates and he replies.

    I used to tag on beeBee, but the new notifications feature seems to make that superflous, except that now people are getting so many notifications they may start ignoring them.

    I've been offline for a couple of weeks and I have 95 new notifications, not counting the ones I hadn't yet checked before I took my break. (Be careful what you wish for.)

    I do a drive-thru on LinkedIn to stay in touch with and promote my followers. I haven't originated a post on LI for quite some time and have no intentions of doing so. I find beBee and WordPress more rewarding.

    I still post stuff on LInkedIn. It isn't all that difficult to copy/paste from beBee.

    Truth: there is more breadth and depth to my beBee posts where I can write about all my "personalities." Not everything gets to Linkedin and whatever does, gets to beBee first.

    There is more LinkedIn activity on a status update than on a long-form post. There is more activity on a status update without an image than with (strange but true)

    CLOSING NOTE: Wanna go viral? Post a video of the Chairman of the Board tripping and falling nuts first on the edge of the boardroom table. To break his fall, he can, accidently, tear the shirt off a female executive.

    To ensure virality, the boardroom table should collapse injuring many people.

    If a birthday cake, with candles lit, flies directly into the Chairman's face as he writhes on the floor clutching his genitals in pain, so much the better.

    "Going viral" is for stupidity, personal embarrassment, and/or multiple injuries. Oh, and for cute kitten things.

    Can anyone name a single valuable business anything that has gone viral?

    I don't use LI half as often as I used to due to the fact that organic reach is next to impossible on LI now. However, to your point @Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA, many of us tag on LI when cross posting and yes, I find the articles that are tagged reach a MUCH larger audience than those articles which have no tags. I agree, just send the person a message stating, I don't care to be tagged. I wrote something on beBee quite a while ago about mass tagging, I don't care to be tagged by the same few people over and over when they are self-promoting their writing. I guess there is a fine line but when it comes to B2B, content writing, etc... or even an important update, tag away!

    I want also to add that number of views could well be related to the position of the writer. If LI manager publishes even an ordinary quality post he shall get more views than a distinctive post by you.
    I stopped completely worrying or paying attention to numbrer of views. I publish on Fridays and Saturdays and these two days hardly get traffic. My concern is to expose the post to the world when ready.

Except recently every post I published on beBee got more view and comments by a factor od 3 to 4. Onle recent buzz on LI got more than 5300 views on LI nad 2400 on beBee. However; still comments on be Bee exceeded by 3 times those on LI.

    Great post, @Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA! I totally agree with you.

    I tag when I want the concerned person's attention to the post. If it's an author whom I have to tagged, it allows other members (in my network and in their's) to know about the person tagged.

    Sorry you lost 3 friends so close together. I'm glad you have a way to express yourself through your writing. Fiction would be a great way to disguise oneself through writing. Thanks for sharing @John Sliz View more

    #Our fear of being alone, @Bernard Poulin, is usually what prevents us from finding ourselves. As long as we're "liked," that's usually enough for most of us.#4

    An uninterrupted life means an alone time life. . . without digital toy distractions. But then, do we dare be alone? Can we stand it? Which will we be? One in delicious solitude or one who is lonely? What's the difference? Solitude is to enjoy the company of one’s “self” - loneliness is to find no one there..

    This buzz is so good. Yes, even when we feel we know where we are going, we take the longest or the wrong way to get there.

    Strangely, it's human equation that's hard to understand and oftentimes our own humor best defines our idiocy and aloofness. We long for peace but look out in wrong things, and to sum up simple things we baffle our senses. @Robert Cormack View more

    Might be a bit off-topic but the worst way to dump someone is when the someone is living in a foreign country. I had to quit my studies in UK when not finding a new flat on my own. I was basically thrown to the streets.

    @Robert Cormack - whist breaking up on holiday works for you, I find that leaving the country (even emigrating like I did) is a sure fire way of breaking up with someone...

    #2 @Louise Smith - most airports these days seem stark and cold... Especially Heathrow! I remember Changi Airport being absolutely stunning with it's own waterfall. Perhaps Singapore is not the place to go to break up!

    Refreshing and amusing buzz @Robert Cormack. If you dump your date in Egypt, chances are you won't see them again, but Starbucks, on the other hand, could be risky

    Mister Cormack, we can blame the environment, the city we travel to, or the airport, train station or bus we are in. They will never be guilty of a rupture, it is an excuse, only the person involved is guilty, in that rupture.
    Ironic humor is not my strong point.

    Great points about Personal branding @Edwin Dearborn. "Competent people attract great opportunities," Most of the time this is certainly true. Competence without arrogance is key. I just landed a great opportunity through my writing, updating my resume and yes, competence.
